Oppo R11s: The iClone you know and love, but not quite the one you deserve
- Better display than base R11
- Great performance for the money
- Face unlock is weaker than competition
- Looks dated when compared to iPhone X
As an alternative to the iPhone 8, the R11s is easy to recommend - the performance is good, the camera rig is nice, it’s got a compelling build quality and slick feel-factor.
Price$ 659.00 (AUD)

Though they often get lumped in with Huawei and ZTE, Oppo have always had a very particular approach to the smartphone market. They aren’t trying to be the best Android handset around. They’re playing a different game entirely, and their target audience isn’t the same one that HTC, LG and the rest are gunning for.
If anything, the Android brand that Oppo probably share the largest crossover with when it comes to target audience is probably Google themselves. Much like the the Pixel, Oppo’s phones are aimed at the all-too-common person who wants an iPhone but reels at the expensive asking price. Theirs is a plight that Oppo’s products try to evoke often than Donald Trump cites the struggles of mid-western American coal miners.
With Apple finally making significant strides forward with the iPhone X, 2018 is going to be a pretty interesting year for Oppo. However, before “interesting” things like the rumored R13 reveal themselves, the brand are kicking off the year with the R11s: a slightly-updated refresh on last year’s flagship R11.
The Oppo R11s boasts a 6-inch ultra-wide 18:9 AMOLED FHD+ display and comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and 4GB of RAM. Under the hood, it pairs this up with 64GB of on-board storage (which can be further expanded via MicroSD. These technical specs are rounded out nicely by a 3200mAh battery, which charges via the Micro-USB port at the bottom of the device.
With regards to software, the R11s runs on Android 7.1 overlaid with Oppo’s friendly neighborhood ColorOS (V3.2) skin. Then, in terms of connectivity, the the R11S comes with Wi-Fi (802.11), 4G and Bluetooth (4.2). There’s no NFC, but the handset does support Dual SIM.
Finally, the camera. The R11s closes out the deal with a dual 20-and-16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and front-facing one boasting a 20-megapixel sensor and a f/2.0 aperture. This is actually a step down from the R11’s dual 20-megapixel rear-camera kit but otherwise a pretty similar configuration.

Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
